I have just learned about your life story and find you to be a huge inspiration in the way life is meant to be lived by all...in the present moment!
Even though your physical body has been invaded by "bad guys," you have not allowed them to penetrate your spirit!!! I am so very touched by your optimism, your strength, and perseverance! Thank you for sharing your life with us!
May God bless you and may Jesus provide healing from your physical wounds as he guides you on your continued spiritual journey!
Love, Light, and Peace!

Prayers for Eric
I have prayed for you since I first heard about your illness a couple of years ago. I am also the mom that sent you some Bible tracts about Jesus. I have always wondered if you came to place your trust and faith in Christ Jesus. He is the only one who can forgive us our sins and give us eternal life. Maybe you have already received that free gift from God, but if not, I pray with all of my heart, that you will. I hope you or someone reading this can answer my question for me.
I am so very sorry both for you and your family that you are not doing well. Praise the Lord that He offers us much more than just this life.
With love in Christ Jesus,

Eric, like so many others I first "met" you through your YouTube video. There's nothing I can add as I share all the heartfelt comments being posted.
I am sorry to learn you have posted your last video, and I would hope you know we are her to support your journey whether you post or not.
Thank you for touching my life, our lives. You have shown us strength, dignity, compassion, love, and how to fight the fight. Godspeed to you and your loved ones.

Thank you for sharing your life with us. We don't always know or understand why things happen to us but they do happen for a reason. I just want to encourage you to not stop living just because your body is failing. This is just the begining. I believe that with all my heart. There is so much more for you! You have touched so many lives and will continue to give hope! You and your family are in my prayers.

Your struggle has been so tough and you tried so hard to survive, but surviving cancer doesn't depend on a mental state or fighting or not. It is an unequal fight and some are lucky and others are not.
It is mean and unfair that you belong to the unlucky ones. I have no words for that.
You are a winner, in every sense of the word.
I wish you to be painfree and to live as many days as you can possibly get.
I wish Clari and all your friends and family all the possible strength they need.
I will think of you, when I fight for a CURE for cancer. I survived, so far.......
From the Netherlands.......... With love....

Eric.. I thank you for your video journey through this hard time in your life...I know that GOD sent you your wife as an angel to be with you during this difficult time. We all have to face leaving here one day...This life is just temporary compared to the true reality of eternity...So, I wanted to tellyou that JESUS is real! and regardless of what the world believes about HIM, HE is. That's why there is so much controversy when HIS name is mentioned, because there is something to it. I beg you to please read ACTS 2:38....because it's the way to salvation and true life. ..I HOPE YOU BELIEVE THIS...because the same thing that Peter is saying in ACTS 2:38 happened to me, and not of my own power. I'm continuiing to pray for you and your family. Don't be afraid, it's just fear of the unknown, which JESUS already told us how it would be...if only we believe.

I've had many challenges in my life - and some continue still. I have been guilty of not always stopping to be grateful of what I DO have. That all stopped after watching your incredible last video. I will never be so selfish as to be ungrateful for the positive things in my life ever again. That is the gift that your video gave to me. And for that, I say "thank you."

Eric & Cari, You are the most courageous couple I have ever known. Eric, You've had so many miracles, I'm hoping for more. Thousands of us out here are with your family in spirit as you face your understandable fears.

Eric, I have viewed some of your videos as my BF has just been diagnosed with AML. I am staying with her on the weekends in the hospital. She has been there for 4 wks now and on her 2d round of 24 hour chemo. I was very touch, deeply touched, by your videos. I wish I could give you both some of my life to keep you going however so much longer. But you will go on in our hearts. I feel like I know you personally. My heart goes out to your family and wife. May God be with you now and forever.
